Graphics card prices in India have been skyrocketing for a year, but thankfully, the market is easing up and the GPU prices are now reaching near MSRP. That’s evidently because people are losing interest in mining due to the new crypto tax and other reasons, and also apparently because we are moving closer to the release of Nvidia’s next-gen GPUs – the RTX 4000 series. In addition to this, the launch of Intel’s first GPU has also made the market aware that the competition is about to get fierce.
